CR84FN Colour Challenge

There is another fab colour combo over at CF84FN Colour Challenge, the colours are light pink,medium violet and light grey. I don't think I have ever used grey on a card before and rarely use violet so this really was a challenge for me,but I really liked the end result. As usual the design team made some gorgeous cards and were a great inspiration.



Here's my card.


The papers I used were K & Co and Anna Griffin, I stamped the Waltzingmouse Holiday Label #14 stamp in SU Basic Grey and added a Marianne diecut butterfly cut out in glitter card with a Prima flower.
I'm off down Milton Keynes tomorrow afternoon for a overnight stay ready to do a workshop with Tim Holtz first thing Friday morning,needless to say I am so excited !!!!!
Back soon to show you what creation I've done at Tim's workshop.
